We’d like to introduce you to our chef and registered dietician, Tessa Stamper. Every month, Tessa will share her culinary and healthy eating tips with you right here. This month it’s all about reducing calories, but not reducing flavor.
Here are two of Tessa’s favorite calorie-conscious meals to help you keep your New Year’s resolution.
First up is the Bangkok Curry TRIO with sautéed shrimp and a tossed green side salad with balsamic vinaigrette.
This meal is both sweet and spicy with only 345 calories, along with a whopping 14 grams of protein. It’s heavy on the fresh veggies, and features a sweet coconut curry wok tossed with shrimp, broccoli, carrots, red pepper, onion, mushrooms and a light portion of rice noodles.
Or if you’re on the go, try something hand-held. The Med Sandwich is made with fresh vegetables and features sautéed mushrooms, red bell peppers, spinach, red onions and crunchy cucumber, all topped with our zippy Med dressing, cilantro and feta cheese on a warm flat bread. Order the sandwich as a ‘Duo’ and add a cucumber tomato salad on the side for a complete meal.
The Med Sandwich Duo with a Cucumber Tomato Salad will cost you only 420 calories and gives you 25 grams of protein.
